Monster PSA: John Carradine

The only difficulty I had with this one was the tag line: try as I might to lengthen it so it would take up two lines (like all the other PSAs), it never worked for me as anything other than the simple, direct "Go big or go home", which, most people would agree, fit Mr. Carradine's acting style, in horror movies at least.

So while visually this one feels a to me (there's just something about the reduced bottom text box that bothers me) I decided it was better to get past that than weaken the tag line with superfluous words.

I love the colors on this one: they don't seem to match Dracula--any Dracula--at all, and yet that's exactly what I like about it!

That taillight red looks like what they used for Carradine in Billy the Kid versus Dracula.

Honestly? I prefer the tightness. It suits both the announcement and the art. I might even like it better than usual.

Oh... and I dig me some Carradine. Another old horror favorite, and a gas when he lampooned his own image.
